A Big Nothing

Isaac never even met me.  Kind of blew me off, like a prom dress in a tornado; or like a jet ski in 3' waves at 55 MPH..

Seriously.  Tampa didn't even get so much as a strong wind, or if we did and in my light sleep did not hear it, that should speak volumes.

Oh wait.

There was a 3' section of an old pine tree laying where the dogs do their morning duty.

And the pavement was wet.

And it was cloudy.

Otherwise?  No big deal.

No wonder the Floridians were non-plussed about the incoming hurricane.  I tend to think I will become like them... "Meh!"

I did, however, buy a fancy flashlight.  You know, just in case... bwahaha.

Sir Isaac

So, you may wonder how a lady from Minnesota viewing the incoming hurricane in Tampa.

Kind of like this:


Yep, can't wait!  Seriously.  I know it will be interesting to be in, and no doubt I will be one of "those" idiots on the patio taking video of the storm squalls and whatever else.  And no doubt, when Sir Isaac has left our beautiful area, I will be grateful for that as well.

See?  Life IS to be lived, loved, and cherished.  We're only here for such a short time, might as well see and experience everything one can.


Earthquake (Acapulco, 2007) - Check!
Tornadoes (Several, 1979 - 2011) - Check!
Blizzard (Duluth, MN, 1991) - Check!  (3' of snow, yes feet, in less than 24 hours)
2nd degree sunburn (Clearwater Beach, 1996) - Check!  (And, truthfully, I'd like to have not had that experience; can we say, "OUCH!" and "Yuck" - when it peeled)

My question for ya'll:

what are you going to do this weekend to enjoy your life?!

I'm Alive

Won't go into details, but holy Batshi$ what the hell?!?


Okay, no really. I'm good. Florida is awesome!! The people here are great, my job is going well (up for a promo and crossing my fingers). Checked out the medical school here; can't really find the oomph in my stride yet. Maybe it's gone, maybe it'll return, maybe I'll find something else that stokes my passion and doesn't leave me hanging. 

Anyway, here's a picture of gorgeous Sanibel Island before the storm blew in.

Hope ya'll are well!
